The cool climate of Ireland’s Aran Islands calls for a cozy wool poncho like this one. Although the three islands are home to only 1,200 people, Aran knitting is recognizable worldwide. The pattern on this Aran poncho is the horseshoe cable stitch, inspired by the hoofprints of the horses that helped drag fishing boats above the high-water mark on the island of Inishmore.
Perfect on a cold day to snuggle in. Very stylish for evening outings. Warm without being too bulky. When new it was a bit itchy, but that is the nature of this wool. Once washed it softened up and was perfect.
